Hermit’s Castle

Designed to blend in expertly with the rocks surrounding it, Hermit’s Castle is one of the most unique structures in the region. Built in the 1950s, this miniature castle overlooks the turquoise clear waters of the sea below and is backed by rugged cliff-edge scenery to give this Lochinver landmark a touch of drama.

Hermit’s Castle is possibly the most unusual of all Scotland’s castles. It is certainly the smallest and the newest. It was built by David Scott, an English architect in the 1950s and was designed to blend in with the surrounding rocks so don’t be surprised if you have difficulty spotting it.
